Then given that = 0.403 ⇒ x = 0.287

Mole fraction of remaining CO at equilibrium = = 1 – 0.287 = 0.713

Initially 1 3 0 0

At equilibrium 1–0.87 3–0.87 0.87 0.87

∴ KC = = = 2.73

Let n be the number of moles of acid consumed when 1 mole of the acid is mixed with 4 moles of ethanol.

C6H5COOH (l) + C2H5OH (l) C6H5COOC2H5(l) + H2O(l)

At equilibrium 1–n 4–n n n

KC = = 2.73

= 2.73

On solving, we get n = 0.90 or 6.99

6.99 is not possible as we started with 1 mole of the acid

∴% of acid consumed = 90%

At eq. (mole) (100–25) 50 = 75

At eq. (p.p.) 1× = 1× =

Kp =

Kp =

x = 0.375 (0r 37.5%)

Now the new pressure P = 10 atm

Let y be the new degree of dissociation. As the temperature is same (250°C), the value of Kp will remain same. i.e. the same manner. Proceeding in the same manner.

Kp =

⇒ y = or y = 0.275 (or 27.5%)

**Note 1:** by increasing pressure, degree of dissociation has decreased, i.e., the system shifts to reverse direction. Compare the result by applying Le Chatelier’s principle.

- a) First determine the equilibrium constant

KC for H2 + I2 2HI

KC =

When 0.3 mol of HI are added, equilibrium is disturbed. At the instant,

[HI] = 0.49 + 0.3 = 0.79 M

Q > KC, since KC =

⇒ backward reaction dominate and the equilibrium shifts to the left.

Let 2x = concentration of HI consumed (while going left) then concentration of each of H2 and I2 formed = x

[HI] = 0.79 – 2x, [H2] = 0.08 + x, [I2] = 0.06 +x and KC = 50

⇒ KC =

⇒ 46x2 + 10.2x – 0.35 = 0

x = 0.033 or – 0.25 (neglecting the –ve value)

Finally, the equilibrium concentrations are:

[HI] = 0.79 – 2x =0.79 – 0.033 × 2 = 0.724 M

[H2] = 0.08 + x = 0.08 + 0.033 = 0.113 M

[I2] = 0.06 + x = 0.06 + 0.033 = 0.093

- b) i) Total no. of moles at equilibrium = 7.6 × 10–3 + 6.6 × 10–3 = 1.42 × 10–2 moles

If 1.42 × 10–2 moles of argon have been added and the volume has been doubled there will not be any change in no. of moles/litre at equilibrium. Hence no effect

- ii) At constant pressure the equilibrium will shift in the direction where no. of moles are decreasing hence to the left.

iii) No effect at constant volume

The total pressure at equilibrium is 110.5 torr.

∴ 98.4-x + 41.3-+ x = 110.5

x = 58.4 torr

Now, 1 atm = 760.4 torr, ∴ x = 7.68 × 10-2 atm.

pNOBr = 7.68 × 10-2 atm ; pNO = 98.4-x = 40 torr = 5.26 × 10-2 atm.

We are given the vapour densities at equibilibrium at 200oC and 250oC.

The initial vapour density will be the same at both the temperatures as it would be

∴ Initial vapour density =

Vapour density at equilibrium at 200oC = 70.2

∴

∴ α = 0.485

At 250oC, 1 + α = , ∴ α = 0.8

where α is the degree of dissociation of N2O4(g)

Since,

Initial vapour density =

Since vapour density and actual density are related by the equation,

V.D. = = = 26.25

∴ 1 + α =

Let the observed molecular weight of selenium be M

∴ No. of moles =

∴ Observed density = = 108.8

Theoretical density = = 237 (molecular weight of Se6 = 79 × 6)

KC = = 0.2645 × 10–4

- X(s) A(g) + C(g) at equilibrium A & C are in equal proportions, so their pressures will be same.

Also PA + PC = 40 ⇒ PA = PC = 20 mm ⇒ Kp = PA.PC = 202 = 400 mm2

Similarly Y(s) B(g) + C(g)

PB = PC = 30 mm ⇒ Kp = PB . PC = 302 = 900 mm2

- i) Now for a mixture of X and Y, we will have to consider both the equilibrium simultaneously.

X(s) A(g) + C(g) and

Y (s) B(g) + C(g)

Let PA = a mm, PB = b mm

Note that the pressure of C due to dissociation of X will also be a mm and similarly the pressure of C due to dissociation of Y will also be b mm.

⇒ PC = (a + b) mm

Kp (for X) = PA . PC = a ( a + b) = 400 (I)

Kp (for Y) = PB.PC = b (a + b) = 900 (ii)

From (I) and (ii), we get

as volume and temperature are constant, the mole ratio will be same as the pressure ratio.

- ii) The total pressure = PT = PA + PB + PC

= a + b + 9a + b) = 2(a + b)

to find a and b, solve the equations

& a (a + b) = 400

Total gaseous moles at equilibrium = 4 – α + 16 – 3α + 2α = 20 – 2α

Since, pressure has fallen to 9/10 of its original value, hence no. of mole will also fall up to the same extent.

∴ (20 – 2α) = ; α = 1

2HI H2 + I2 (degree of dissociation is 0.8)

Initially | 1.0 | 0 | 0 |

At new equilibrium | 1.0 – 0.8 | 0.4 | 0.4 |

KC =

Now we have to start with 0.135 mol each of H2 and I2 and the following equilibrium will be established.

H2 + I2 HI with KC = 1/4

Concentrations | H2 | I2 | 2HI |

Initially | 0.135 | 0.135 | 0 |

At new equilibrium | 0.135 – x | 0.135 – x | 2x |

⇒ KC = ⇒ x = 0.135/5 = 0.027

now find the moles of I2left unreacted at equilibrium

n(I2) = 0.135 – 0.027 = 0.108

I2 reacts with sodium thiosulphate (Na2S2O3) as follows:

2Na2S2O3 + I2 Na2S4O6 + 2NaI

applying the mole concept, we have,

2 moles of Na2S2O3 ≡ 1 mole of I2

⇒ 0.018 moles of I2 ≡ 2 × 0.108 = 0.216 moles of Na2S2O3 are used up

⇒ moles = MVn (M = molarity, Va = volume in litres)

⇒ 0.216 = 1.5 V

⇒ V = 0.144 lt = 144 ml

- Firstly calculate KP at 100°C by using equation

Find the pressure of CO2

- It can be seen that as SO2 is not present initially, so equilibrium cannot be established in the forward direction. Therefore it is established from reverse direction. Let n be the increase in partial pressure of O2. Then at equilibrium the partial pressures of SO2, O2 at SO3 are (0+2n), (2+n) and (1–2n) in atm respectively.

2SO2(g) + O2(g) 2SO3(g)

(0+2n) (2+n) (1–2n)

Also,

As n is small (because equilibrium constant for the reverse reaction is very small i.e., 1/900), it can be neglected in comparison to 2 and also

1–2n can be taken approximately to 1.

∴ 900 =

Solving for n, we get n = 0.0118

Hence, = 2+n = 2.0118 atm

= 2n = 0.0236 atm

= 1–2n = 1–0.0236 = 0.9764 atm

**Solution to Objective Problems **

**LEVEL – I**

- An increase in temperature favours endothermic reaction i.e. backward reaction if

KOH (s) + aqueous KOH(aq) ΔH = – x

**∴ (B)**

- gas liquid ΔH = (–)ve

**∴ (A)**

- According to Lechatlier principle.

**∴ (C)**

- k for overall reaction = k1 × k2 = 102 × 102 = 1

**∴ (C)**

- Kp = KC(RT)Δn

Δn = –1 here ⇒ Kp = 25 × (0.0821 × 523)–1 = 0.6 atm–1

**∴ (A)**

- Solid liquid; ΔH = positive

Increase in temperature favours forward reaction

**∴ (A)**

- QK =

An increase in [H+] will show a decrease in [HS–] to maintain constant K.

**∴ (D)**

- Since ΔH is positive the reaction is endothermic . As per LeChatlier principle, when the temperature is raised, it should proceed towards that direction where heat is absorbed i.e. towards the product side.

**∴(A) **

- For the reaction H2 + I2 2HI (g) since Δn = 0. Equilibrium constant KC will be uneffected by change in pressure.

**∴ (A)**

- C2H5OH + CH3COOH CH3COOCH3 + H2O

Initially 1 1 0 0

At equilibrium

K = =

**∴ (A)**

- Since decomposition of PCl5 is carried out in a closed container. When helium gas is introduced the volume remains constant and there is no change in the partial pressures of PCl5, PCl5 and Cl2. Therefore, nothing happens on introduction of helium gas and constant volume.

**∴(D)**

- KP = KC(RT)Δn

KP <KC if Δn<0

For reaction (C) the value of Δn is –2 and for reaction (D) the value of

Δn is–1

**∴ (C) & (D)**

- 2AB4(g) A2(g) + 4B2(g) ΔH = –ve

It is an Exothermic reaction and hence favoured at low temperature. Δn for the reaction is +3. Therefore low pressure will favour the forward reaction

**∴(C)**

- KC = = 7.5 × 102

**∴(B)**

- For the backward reaction ΔH = + 40Kcal mol1 for endothermic reactions K increase with increase of temperature

**∴ (C)**

**LEVEL – II**

- Volume of ice > volume of water and thus increase in pressure favours forward reaction showing decrease in volume.

**∴ (B)**

- Cdiamond Cgraphite

For a given mass Vdiamond <Vgraphite

∴ Thus increase in pressure will favour backward reaction.

- Enthalpy changed of a reaction is given by

ΔH = (Ea)f – (Ea)b

Where (Ea)f and (Ea)b are energies of activation for the forward and backward reactions.

ΔH = 12–20 = –8 kJ / mol

KP for the reaction at 25°C = 10 atm. Since KP is expressed in

atmosphere, Δn = +1

QKP = KC (RT)Δn, KC = = 0.4 M

KC at 40°C is given by

(KC)40/(KC)25 = 0.85

(KC)40 = 0.85 ×0.4 = 0.34 M

number of moles of H2 remaining = 0.6–0.24 = 0.36

number of moles of NH3 formed = 0.16
